Balfour Building

When in Toronto I met up with the lovely Edith Levy for an hour of photos in Graffiti Alley just off Spadina Avenue. Thank you, Edith, for taking the time out of your busy day to show me this location. You can see Edith’s shots from Graffiti Alley in her post ‘iPhone Friday – A Little Street Art‘ (you get a glimpse of me in that post also).

The last shot I took on that little excursion was not from the alley, but of a building we were passing. I often walk around looking skywards (it’s amazing I don’t trip up more than I do) and this building was just calling out at me to take the shot so I quickly snapped a few brackets, while I’m sure Edith took another glance at her watch as I made her become late(r) back to work. I’m glad I did though as I liked the end results.

I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again – when in any location it’s worth looking up, but this is especially true when in a city.

Have a good weekend everyone.

  1. I really like how your captured the bas relief effect of the building lettering and the decorative elements around the window, The color tones of the window and the reflected sky are good counterpoints to the colors and textures of the building’s walls.
